Recs for a BW virgin

I have tried to wear all my children and it has never worked well. I have an Ergo and had a Kangaroo Karrier (I think? I sold it five years ago). My kids can't stand the ergo. They hate being turned in so close, even as newborns. My back KILLS me when I wear my babies. I think it must just be a bad fit. I had a BWing friend show me how to use the ergo before she moved away, but it just doesn't work for us. My youngest is 14 months old and wants to be held a lot, but ony on my hip. Suggestions for something EASY to use that way that won't destroy my back?

Ditto to the ring sling! They are the best.

Maybe there is a lending library in your place. Trying out a carrier first before actually buying one might be great.

The Ergo always killed my back too. I recently won a babyhawk off ebay for $33 shipped and it is heaven. I don't even feel the 3 foot tall 27lb toddler on the front or back. I'd say try one of those.
